I am loving this little camera. So sharp! (not that it really shows in my crappy scans)

Here's some recent shots:

This is my dog and ever suffering model, Snuffa:

My grandpa. He is responsible for my addiction to photography... I'll be picking up a Leica M3 in a few weeks that he bought in the early sixties and is now a family heirloom.

Ben, I just saw these set. The RC's lens is biting sharp. I love the way you pair it with your strobing kit.

Thanks guys!

Yep, the lens is sharp alright. I just love it! Such a cute little camera.

Here's another shot from the same roll:

It was a bit underexposed, so I converted it to black and white.

I love using it with an off camera strobe - being able to sync much, much faster than my dSLR opens up a lot of options. And the Vintage Olympus strobe is pretty cool as well - if only I could manually adjust the output.

I've got a roll of XP-2 in there at the moment. I can't wait to finish and develop it :)

Just to cut through the language barrier, I take it what you guys call a strobe is what we refer to a as a flashgun...

Great photos. I especially love the one of the dog. I envy you that clear blue sea as well

OT: Has anyone ever seen, in the flesh, the Oly PS-100 flash/strobe? It has a horizontal orientation, rather than the common vertical orientation of the PS-200.
